In recent days, the “Insight China” magazine and the State Information Center jointly published the list of the 2018 China “Top 100 Happy Counties”, and the Chibi is on the list, ranking 66th in the 100 county-level cities which have been surveyed.
“The 10 major characteristics of a happy county” issued in this survey are as follows: an excellent natural ecological environment and air quality; moderate size of urban areas and population, and a comparatively slow pace of life; rather complete educational supporting facilities; a stable and harmonious social public security environment; a relatively high medical level; reassuring food and clean water sources; enough public places of entertainment and recreation for people; convenient public transportation; rich historical accumulation and humanistic connotations, and a rational housing price.
In recent years, centering on “the Four-pronged Comprehensive Strategy”, Chibi has vigorously practiced “5 development concepts”. In the meantime, it also fixes its eyes on the “3 focuses and 1 optimization” (It is a strategy about boosting development by promoting investments, attracting investing by great projects, impelling projects by attracting business and attracting business by ameliorating environment), going all out to build a China Green and Ecological Industry Demonstration and Trading Base, Central China Emergency Safety Industry Cluster Base, Modern Logistics Base in Central China and a recreational tourism and holiday base. Up till now, Chibi has claimed more than 30 national and provincial awards successively, fully demonstrating the Chibi spirit, which advocates cooperation, opening-up, inclusiveness and pioneering spirit.
